Today, I, mom and my friend Donna went to lunch at One Steep at a Thyme Tea Room which is located in the heart of Jamesburg, NJ. We drove up to this beautiful blue Victorian home, and were greeted by a kind gentleman who guided us where to park and walked us into the house. He introduced to the owner (his wife) Kathy who greeted us with a warm smile, thanked us for coming and showed us to our table.
Our server gave us a brief and interesting history of the room where we were seated. She was pleasant woman who you could tell liked her job. She smiled the entire time and made some nice small talk with the group. The greeting from everyone made you feel welcomed, important and special.
The Tea Room was eloquently decorated in an antique style decor. The restaurant atmosphere was clean, cozy, comfortable, relaxing, and soothing and you felt like you were home.
We enjoyed a 7-course tea service during a 2 hour time period. The food and tea were absolutely scrumptious and complimented each other. They have 100 different teas to choose from which are in the families of Black tea, Oolong Tea, Herbal Tea, Green tea, etc… Kathy (the owner) makes the food herself. I must say she is one hell of a cook. Again, all the food and tea was incredibly delicious.
Our experience today at One Steep at a Thyme Tea Room was delightful. From the service to the food and tea, it was an outstanding experience. If you are looking to do or try something different with a friend, spouse, group of friends, etc., go to One Steep at a Thyme. It will be an experience which will make you want to come back for more...
